NOTE, Martha inicates that 9 children were born and some lesser number were living in 1930, Cannot make out the number of living for sure, Does not really look like a 6, there are 6's above and below this one and they are different, but the entery does not look like anything else either. I am not sure of her reply regarding the number living.

Re; Wm. Jennings Nix birth date I think I covered that in my last letter. The correct spelling of the Cemetery is Wolf Cemetery (I have a picture of the entrance taken when I was back there in 2002. He and Martha Elizabeth MOORE were married 18 Feb 1884. Martha E. was born 5 Sep 1863 Oppelo, Perry Co., (later Conway Co.) AR. She died 4 Aug 1938 in Oppelo. I told you about having a picture of their log cabin.

Martha Elizabeth MOORE�s parents were James Marion Moore born circa 1823 TN died on or about 18 Mar 1864 in Oppelo. He was married to Elizabeth A. TAYLOR in Roane Co., TN 27 Jun 1844 � she was born Feb 1823, TN and died 14 Sep 1903 in Oppelo.
